General Information

  1. The issuance of Student Pass (Visa) Approval Letter by the Malaysian Immigration Department takes up to one (1) month. It is the prerogative of the Immigration authorities to approve or reject visa applications.
  2. Students are responsible to check with the Malaysian Embassy in their country for visa requirements before coming to Malaysia. For example, the student may need to apply for a Single-Entry Visa to enter Malaysia, in order to avoid a fine or being turned back at the airport.
  3. Students from yellow fever endemic areas (e.g. Africa, Central and South America) are required to take the necessary inoculations. The vaccination certificate will be verified by the Health & Quarantine officers in the Airport.

Students are referred to ICYM College's Rules & Regulations governing their academic rights and obligations during their tenure of study in ICYM College.
